Some of the ladies knitted as many as eight helmetliners showing their heartfelt support to our service men and women. The deadline for this service project is Tuesday February 26. As of Friday February 8 eight scarves and 19 helmetliners have been completed. We thank all who
participated in this endeavour to benefit the men and women who are defending our country.
This is Julie working on a helmet liner. The display at the entrance of the Mint Hill Library drew the interest of borrowers and visitors.
The Mint Hill Stitch In group will join the Public Library in Charlotte Mecklenburg promoting the Paint Your Town Read (pronounce the word read as the color red) by knitting or crocheting red scarves to be donated to children and teens in our area. For more information about the Paint Your Town Read visit: www.plcmc.org/paintthetownread. This program promotes reading just for the fun of it and encourages families to participate to discover how reading together can enrich their lives.
